Fill in the blanks.

Rice is a ____________ crop.

Answer :

Rice is a tropical crop.

Explanation. Rice is the staple diet crop especially for the regions surrounding the tropical areas of the world. A hot, humid and moist condition is required for the excellent growth of the crop. It gives the best yield in the alluvial soil that has rich nutrients because of the deposition by the flow of rivers and water bodies over time. It results in the formation of river beds and ensures the development of smooth and fertile soil where water can be held stagnant making it ideal for cultivation. Since it requires an average temperature of 24 ̊ and an average rainfall of 150cm, it can be considered as a tropical crop grown in the kharif season between July and October.
